Spicy Salmon and Avocado Salad

April 17, 2012

Cool, creamy avocado. Delicious, nutritious salmon. Spicy Tabasco. Perfect meal for enjoying out on the deck!

Mmm…avocados!  You all know by now how much I LOVE avocados!  I know I just posted a very similar recipe for Tuna and Avocado Salad not long ago.  This is a very simple variation on that same meal!  Sub out the tuna and lemon for salmon and lime, add a couple of dashes of Tabasco, and DELICIOUS!

Spicy Salmon and Avocado Salad


  • 2 six ounce cans of boneless, skinless salmon (I like Trader Joe’s brand), drained
  • 1 avocado, cut into 1/4 inch dice
  • zest of one lime
  • juice of one lime
  • 2 Tablespoons red onion, diced fine
  • Tabasco sauce (How much you use depends on how spicy you want the salad.  I used about 10 dashes for a moderately spicy dish.)
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • Mixed baby greens (optional)

What to do:

Combine all of the above ingredients in a bowl.  Using a spoon or fork, gently break up the salmon into little pieces.  The avocado will mash slightly, but you will still have some larger chunks dispersed throughout the salad.  Check for seasoning – I used 2 pinches of sea salt and 3 grinds of pepper and it was perfect for our taste!  Throw the salad on top of mixed baby or eat it straight out of the bowl!  Scrumptious!

Yield 2 servings.

    Marjorie–this is a great recipe! I made something similar last week and wrapped it up in a sheet of nori to make paleo sushi a la Melissa Joulwan. I like the idea of the lime zest & red onion in yours 🙂
